I was in two minds about keeping a list of closures in 2023. Towards the end of 2022 it was starting to feel a bit ghoulish, that we were all rubber-necking the car-crash of the industry. But people pointed out that it was a great reference for them, and that it made a great talking point, making people aware of exactly how bad it was out there. The list is here: 2022 Closures

So I’m going to try and do it again this year. I’ll try and provide more information on them as I go along this time, rather than just a list of who’s next.

As always, if you know of any more please let me know so I can keep this up to date. I know of several more to add that are either rumoured or not publically announced yet, but this list is just those with some form of “proof” available publicly on the internet. If there’s something here that shouldn’t be, do please let me know as though I do my best to verify everything I’m bound to make mistakes.
